Gift Box Design with Stenciling Technique

As the Eid festival is coming near, now its time to give and get some gifts from family & friends..Yayy.. My family & friends are always expecting something arty/crafty from me & this is kind of a hard Task always! Well I handle anyway..haha. Gift Packing and gift box designing is a really important thing when you are gifting, a person who is going to open the box will be definitely first reviewing the packing. So its necessary to work on the gift pack/wrap before giving it away! a ready-made packing with printed paper sheet wraps is also good but will may be not that impressive as something compared to any hand designed packing! making some hand designed gift wraps are not difficult, just a few time is needed with a little bit of creativity..So this is what I did before gifting some goodies to one of my friend. As my friend is also having Creative Cells inside her, so it was necessary for me to create something in a creative way so She will be enjoying it more.. well.. See what & how I did..

I were having some brown package boxes, ( my laptop charger & accessory boxes were useless now, so why to throw these out to make some mess at this pretty Planet?? Nahh, I would not..!) I reuse/recycle some brown packing boxes in a fun creative way! as these boxes were plain so I were not having any trouble to hide the writing or sticker things etc..

Who don’t Love Chevron design?? I am in love with its zig-zag-ness..really! So I use some stencils of chevron design and make prints on these brown boxes.

All you need to have is a stencil, foam brush or dodge tool & glitter/acrylic paints..That’s it..

I receive these stencils from Amy & Plaid. The Acrylic paint/glitter glue is also gifted by plaid years back. So I am using all in this project.

The Stencil is sticky & made of rubber material, first of all peel off the stencil from its packing carefully and then paste it on the surface where you want to make the chevron design. Nicely adjust the stencil and more carefully remove it from your project when the mod podge or paints are dry!

I try first on a small box, because if there will be any craft fail kind of thing.. so I will be able to adjust it somewhere..haha.. well First I apply the stencil on small square box & then use some glitter glue over it. after 5 minutes when I saw the glue is dry, I peel off the stencil from box. Glitter glue was dry and looking perfect with chevron print..

There after the stencil experiment success, then I start working on the other box but here I choose a different design scheme. first I stencil the sides of the box with black chevron design, and then I use red color for the middle part.

I measure the area and then I place a card at the sides of stencil area and fill the stencil with color.

Sides design is done with black acrylic paint and then I use Red folk art acrylic paints for the middle area stenciling.

And there we go…. Its done..It was all about fixing the stencils and then peeling off carefully. I admit there was a bit of mistake kinda thing when the color was penetrating because of card surface of the box. but it was fine as it gets dry!

I use the dodge tool and make some big polka dots on the sides of the boxes! isn’t it looking fine.. I am happy at this reuse/recycle.. I hope my dear reader will also be enjoying the tutorial as well as the idea..

    I love the chevron patterns you put together! I never get lucky enough to have a plain box…it’s always got writing on it. But I guess I could cover it up with paper or paint it first.

    Great idea! Thanks for sharing!

    How awesome is this?! I do typically get the box with nothing on it, so people have it in something. I’ve never seen a box like this with this design on it. Very creative and lovely. Thanks so much for sharing this masterpiece with us at the Creative Style Linkup!

    I like the way you masked off the diagonal section. I’m going to have to remember this trick the next time I stencil.
